forgot this one!

Oeps! I forgot to add this one! Enjoy!

Close up Details.

Ok. I have putting up many images of flowers and my garden recently, so I thought you might like to see some of what this has been inspiring.
Here are some close up details of some paintings I have been working on recently. I wonder if you can see the link with my garden pics.

And now to sneak in some more pics because I cannot get enough of all those plants!

Have a great bank hol! ( if you are in a part of the world where you get one.)

working in my studio

I have finally got round to getting some pics of my studio. ohh and me.!

I am so fortunate to have a lovely view of the garden from my studio. at the moment it is a changing by day. Pure joy and inspiration.

Messy !!

sometimes I realize what a mess I make when painting! I get soooo absorbed by what I am doing and use anything that is at hand to make the marks with. This then of course also includes using my fingers!

The inspector calls

Yesterday while I was painting I suddenly became aware of a presence....and yes there was, The Inspector! I had left my studio door open and someone had taken advantage of that, to find out what on earth was going on in there!
The paintings in the background are the latest ones I am working on.
